ASSESSMENT OF SOCIAL ALIENATION: PSYCHOMETRIC PROPERTIES OF THE SACS-R
Abstract:The psychometric properties of a revision of the Social Alienation from Classmates Scale for college students was examined. A number of constructs, and related measures, have been developed to address estrangement. Consistent with prior research on other measures of estrangement, SACS-R scores were expected to be correlated with scores on tests of depression, stress, introversion, attractiveness, and family functioning. Social Desirability was controlled through partial correlations, and a peer sociometric was also employed. Results support the reliability and validity of SACS-R scores from a sample of college men.
